Fox Island has been washed away by sea level rise, forcing end of Chesapeake Bay education program. (Baltimore Sun)

Global warming and ocean level rise are real.  Grateful that some nineteen Florida Mayors, including St. Augustine Mayor Tracy Upchurch, are in Washington, D.C. with former Mayor Nancy Shaver this week at the American Flood Coalition.

When I was a teenager, my mom and I took a boat for $5 from Chatham to the barrier island on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts, lunching on delicious tuna fish sandwiches.  That barrier island is gone at that point, and the once-enclosed Chatham harbor is open to the ocean.
